holmes, i'm sure you're aware he did get his guns and ammunition legally. so what changes do the law -- to the law are you looking for? >> well, i mean i don't know that, for example, requiring universal background checks would have changed what would have happened in aurora specifically, but i mean aurora and columbine, those are the big named shootings that we talk about every day, but kids are dying on the streets in chicago every day and law enforcement had told us that the best way to reduce the number of people who are dying across this country from gun violence is to require background checks. i mean 40% of guns sold in this country don't require a background check under federal law because they're sold privately. i think some people don't know that. >> what do you say to people who suggest that gun control is really irrelevant to mass shootings because the perpetrators will always find a way to get around the laws if they really want to, maybe they'll steal a gun, find a gun, whatever it snies you know, there's always going to be black market or, you know, a secondary market

state courts could negate some of the new laws that are intended to require photo i.d.s for voters? >> the first observation is in terms of that case in maryland, that was one misguided example where it never should have happened, the race wasn't that close, so it was a huge mistake by that individual and he paid for it with time in prison. in terms of your concern about voter i.d., and having to show i.d., i live in virginia i just got my voter card. they allow anything like a utility bill or anything like that. it's a lot easier to go vote in america than get on an airplane. so if you're worried about fraud, i think these are reasonable requirements. >> i guess in terms of polling, to the extent that our firms can, we try to poll off a registered voter list so they are registered voters who presumably have -- and in elections we try to sample people who not only register but have voted in past elections. >> but this year the requirements for voting are not going to be just that you register, they're going to be that you have a voter i.d. how do you account for that? >> we ask the

to flagrant violations of international law. there is a charter for collective action when one member is attacked. what are the chances that nato will get involved here? >> reporter: very slim right now. when you say nato besides the uk and france who have limited capacity to help here, we're talking about america. until the next election is passed and until the next administration wants to get involved in this, we're not going to see any major nato intervention. the backing is firm. that will help bolster turkey's case and push the military back to prevent this thing from happening ever again. but we're really talking about a potential of the future over know fly zone, maybe in months time if nato decides to step forward d seize turkey once again attacked by the syrians. but for now this is very much a rhetorical response and we're going to be talking weeks and months of continued aggression by the syrians as the turkish will see it, until you see any game change like that. >> nick, thank you very much. >>> update on a troubling medical story. the meningitis outbreak in tennessee has
